Is Auckland Transport going too slow on speed cuts ?

Todd Niall Reporter from Central Leader

Auckland Transport's board may drop all or some of the planned speed restrictions on nearly 800 Auckland roads. Some might not make sense but if a lot are dropped following consultatio, how can Aucklanders be sure that it not simply because a reduction is unpopular? Read the story below:

Need ideas for first baby’s first birthday :)

Janet from Mount Roskill

Hi all,

Our first baby son’s birthday will fall on 23 Dec. It’s about 2 months to go. As new parents, we wanna make it a special occasion for him. Doesn’t have to be big or fancy, just small and sweet is enough to make it a memorable experience for him and our little family.

Wonder if you folks have any good ideas to share please. I’m thinking to bake a cake too but no idea what’s the best one to make.

Let me know. Thank you so much!

When bags move like ballerinas

The Team from Auckland Museum

Ballerinas twist, turn and move so gracefully that they often seem other-worldly, but would you ever compare a ballerina to a bag?

In our Carried Away: Bags Unpacked exhibition, artist Isaac Katzoff’s glass bag got itself a nickname of just that: the ballerina. The nickname was given after the bag hinted at graceful movement while it was under the spotlight in the photography studio - it's inner performer was at the ready.

Although the Museum holds many objet d’art (art objects), the beautiful photography and images of the collection are themselves works of art, as this image of Katzoff's bag here is. Museum photographers work behind the scenes to create images of objects that act as both documentation and art.

As Artweek Auckland comes to a close this weekend, we wanted to showcase just one of many of the wonderful objet d'art from within our Applied Arts & Design collection.

Come and see 'the ballerina' for yourself, alongside many other wonderful works of art at Carried Away: Bags Unpacked, on now and free with Museum entry.
